PV industry supply chain price report: solar silicon powder quotes have been adjusted downward, supply chain prices began to fluctuate
The recent downward adjustment of solar silicon powder quotes, coupled with the clearing of the scale of power restrictions and the cancellation of the U.S. anti-circumvention investigation of Southeast Asian origin, a new round of price fluctuations in the supply chain of photovoltaic products has begun.

Solar silicon silicon prices fluctuate slightly, the range of quotes narrowed


With the zeroing out of the scale of power restrictions, the upstream solar silicon powder supply is sufficient and the offer price has been adjusted downward, easing the tight supply situation of solar silicon material. And with the loosening of downstream product quotes, solar silicon prices have a tendency to pull back, a small number of orders have seen a loosening of quotes, but no transactions, the overall average price of transactions is the same as last week, but the high quotes have gradually decreased, the current overall average price of solar monocrystalline materials for USD 42.44/KG, the market quotes range between USD 41.50-43.06/KG.

Solar silicon


Observing the production operation and shipment of the solar silicon segment, 12 domestic solar silicon enterprises in China are in production, and one enterprise has yet to resume production. Orders, downstream vertically integrated enterprises to increase the PV module shipments, the demand for solar silicon material, as of this month, solar silicon enterprises orders have been signed, some enterprises December orders are also signed, to promote the supply of solar silicon material to maintain a tight balance, the market price also in the game to remain stable.


Solar wafer offers continue to fluctuate, M6 monocrystalline solar wafer prices fell slightly


After the lifting of the pressure of electricity restrictions, solar wafer enterprises started to improve, vertically integrated silicon wafer enterprises based on downstream PV module shipments, crop rate rebounded, some of the downstream PV module enterprises to protect the supply, proceeded to sign next year's long order.

Solar wafer

The recent market bearish atmosphere in the upstream of the industry chain offer is strong, some companies slowed down the pace of procurement, resulting in the continued weakening of demand for monocrystalline solar wafers, some monocrystalline solar wafer companies for inventory pressure considerations, has made small concessions on the offer, especially monocrystalline M6 products, the bottom price of the transaction continues to dip, the mainstream price fell back to USD 0.89/PC, large size solar wafers, prices On the polycrystalline solar wafer side, the overall offer is relatively stable, depending on the acceptance of downstream demand, with the current domestic and overseas offers at USD 0.38/PC and USD 0.329/PC.


Solar cell quotes are stable, with news of impending price drops upstream, closely related to the cell trend


Solar cell offers are stable this week, with the market paying close attention to upstream price trends. The recent market rumors of the news that the upstream is about to drop prices, the overall solar cell offer is stable, mainly due to the double pressure of upstream products upward, downstream procurement slowdown, the profit margin of solar cells has been very limited, if the solar silicon wafer offer no obvious downward trend, the overall solar cell offer is still mainly to maintain stability. At present, in addition to some monocrystalline solar cells M6 cells, affected by demand, the high offer slightly declined, the mainstream price in the USD 0.17-0.18 / W. Large size solar cells, M10, G12 monocrystalline solar cells mainstream price in the USD 0.180 / W and USD 0.175 / W, respectively.

Solar cell


In terms of polycrystalline solar cells, the competitiveness of products tends to be weaker under the high upstream cost market conditions, and downstream transactions are becoming scarce, with mainstream prices at USD 0.14/W and USD 0.02/W at home and abroad.


PV module part of the price fell slightly, more than 530W high power PV module projects have been winning bids


This week's PV module quotes continued from last week, with some PV module quotes falling slightly. As the end demand is slow to pick up, the second and third tier PV module enterprises take the initiative to reduce the price and deal at the time of quotation in order to reduce the inventory. At this stage, the overall offer of the PV module market is slightly confusing, some enterprises to sell inventory, the offer is far below the market price, and caused a certain impact on the market, following last week's 166mm monocrystalline PV module offer loosening, this week, 182, 210mm size components have loosened the offer, although this week landed orders less, but is expected to PV module offer fears difficult to maintain stability, the current 182, 210mm monocrystalline In addition, G1 monocrystalline PV module transactions have been reduced, and the quotation for 325-335 / 395-405W monocrystalline PERC modules in USD has been cancelled since this week.

PV module


On the demand side, in the recent Chinese domestic PV module bidding market, projects applying high power PV modules above 530W have been winning one after another, with prices stabilizing between USD 0.31-0.32/W, showing that rigid demand for PV modules has increased tolerance for prices. Overseas markets, the United States good news frequently, first canceled the anti-circumvention investigation of Southeast Asian origin, and recently reduced the 201 tariff to 15%, and exempted the import tariff of double-sided components, will undoubtedly support the continued growth of demand for photovoltaic modules.


Next week PV module market forecast

This week, PV module prices are basically stable, with Christmas and Chinese New Year holiday is getting closer, due to holiday-driven market fluctuations are inevitable. In addition, the rebound of the U.S. market indicates that the demand side of PV modules will continue to increase. It is recommended that customers with small volume demand stock up in time to avoid sudden market demand surge and PV module price increase to compress your profit margin.
